Caitlin Walker has produced an excellent training set of DVDs

An Introduction to Clean Language
and Systemic Modelling


You can through Anglo American Books 

 
"Whether you are a beginner to Systemic Modelling or an experienced

practitioner you will find Caitlin's DVD contains guidance
to support your learning and creative thinking galore."

Penny Tompkins and James Lawley, co-authors of Metaphors in Mind


Clean Language questions, modelled from the work of David Grove, are used to explore the way we use metaphor in speech and thought.  At their simplest, Clean Language questions can be used to clarify meaning and communication.  More powerfully, they can be used to help clients access powerful metaphors for peak states, and deal with issues by exploring and changing unhelpful metaphors.

Systemic Modelling takes the use of Clean Language into group settings.  In years of using David’s work, Caitlin Walker has applied ‘Clean’ approaches in a variety of settings, including work with disaffected teenagers, senior management, team building, recruitment and retention, diversity training, helping long term unemployed into sustainable work, to name but a few.  In that time, Caitlin has modelled out the practical skills needed by a facilitator to apply Clean Language processes successfully in both 1-1 work and group settings.

This DVD set is a distillation of Caitlin's experience.  It presents simple exercises for personal awareness and skill development, and for the practice of Clean Language and Systemic Modelling in any group setting: on trainings, in schools, business teams, communities — or just for fun.

The set is designed for interested beginners, or people familiar with clean questions who want to practise developing themselves and others. The set contains explanations, guided exercises, a workbook, and footage of a live training where you can watch others going through the exercises.
